Talented Diahnn Carroll
I get so irritated when people think of her as a Dynasty B$$$ch! She is a marvelously talented Broadway star and her voice is wonderful. The song 'The Sweetest Sounds' from 'No Strings' is awesome!

Talented singers were successful
Eddie Fisher was barely 25 years old but had his own singing show. He had to and did produce a sound that America loved. Lovely singer Diahann Carroll was only 18 but people knew they wanted more of her. Today's American Idol seems more like a panel program looking for talent but not really finding it until months later. Notice how small the serving glass for coke and sandwich came without chips or fries. Our portions today are too large.

Good old time TV broadcast. Eddie Fisher was cute. The coke commercials are charming.
